Grand Theft Auto is a truly massive game. Between GTA 5 and the constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online; there’s no shortage of new content and interesting things to do.

Join me, then, in our continuing series, getting gold in every damn mission, in GTA 5; as we look at Grand Theft Auto Mission 9, Friend Request.

…and don’t forget to hang about until the end, so you can catch some neat factoids about Life Invader.

Know any neat mods we could use to do a bit more exploration in Lost Santos, or North Yankton? Leave your suggestions in the comments.

With Michael now owing $2,500,000 to Martin Madrazo for his mistress’ house, he visits the home of an old friend named Lester Crest.

Once at the Lifeinvader offices, Michael waits at the back entrance as an employee walks outside for his cigarette break and lets him in.

Waiting until Norris reveals the phone, Michael dials the number.

Lester calls, saying the incident has generated a huge profit for him on the stock market, and agrees to help Michael.

At an unknown point in time, Lester met and became affiliated with Michael Townley and Trevor Philips, becoming a regular member of their heist crews since the start of their partnership, working mostly as a planner and information scout.

It is stated by Michael during The Merryweather Heist that Lester went against doing the heist depicted in the Prologue, possibly having an idea of what eventually happened.

About Rickie Lukens (the tech with the, err, “virus” problem)

Rickie is first encountered in the Friend Request mission, where he unwittingly helps Michael infiltrate the Lifeinvader Office, as he mistakes Michael for tech support and asks him to remove pornography pop-ups from his computer.

Rickie is subsequently fired from Lifeinvader following Jay Norris’ murder, and calls Michael to offer his services as a programmer, after which he becomes available as a hacker for the subsequent heists.

Michael will be more lenient if an experienced Rickie is unable to turn off the sprinklers, only asking him to be more prepared next time.

If Rickie is chosen for the first time during the Subtle approach for The Big Score, there will be a considerable four-second lag time when Franklin is controlling the traffic lights.

If Rickie is not chosen for any heists, he will call Michael to complain.

hi in this video we’ll be taking you through how to get gold in grand theft
auto 5’s ninth mission friend request we’ll do some tech
support and make a great impression on the keynote speech at the life invader
launch hi and welcome back my name’s Dan and
i’m an Old Grumpy Gamer grand theft auto is a truly massive game
between gta 5 and the constant updates from rockstar for gta online there’s
no shortage of new content and interesting things to do
join me then in our continuing series getting gold in everyday mission
in gta 5 as we take a look at grand theft auto mission 5
friend request and don’t forget to hang about until the end
so you can catch some neat little factoids about life invader
before we dive in if you’re new to the channel we do how-to guides
news and giveaways so consider subscribing and ringing the bell to stay
up to date to get gold in this one we’ll need to
complete the whole mission in under 8 minutes and 30 seconds
and clear all the pop-ups in 32 seconds so let’s dive in we’ll skip the cutscene
because we’re on a timeline so we’ll run
uh grab a car grab a faster car
then follow the gps
pull up to the suburban just park right out the front
run in
and once you get through the forced slowing skip the cutscene
move to the first rack on the left bring up the menu and then grab the
first thing that that’s available for purchase as
soon as you can start running again start running
jump in the car and follow the gps to the life invader
pull up to the left jump out of the car and then jump
over the wall and the cut scene will start immediately so you can skip that
straight away and we’ll follow the dev up to the
office and unfortunately this is a force slowed we cannot run
and it can be a little bit frustrating
up the stairs around to the left and then
around to the left again
as we approach the devs desk there’s a shortcut scene so we’ll just skip that
one and then jump straight into knocking out the pop-ups
so this one’s got to be done pretty quickly so we only have about 32 seconds
to get rid of the whole box and dice so as soon as you can
clear off the pop-ups and as soon as all of the pop-ups are clear and not
before run the anti-virus
so that’s all clear and we’ll skip the rest of the cutscene as soon as we can
right past the post and then we’re heading for that
yellow door on the left hand side so head in there
skip the cut scene again we don’t need to worry about planting the
device out to the right
pass the beat boxer
then down the stairs and here’s the trick as well
it’s going to want you to go right we want to go left
through the kitchen out the door
and then out the next set of doors back over the wall
and into our car we’ll give lester a quick call and then
head home
all right pull in
jump out of the car
cancel the call with lester run into the house and then head to the lounge room
on the right skip the cut scene with tracy and then
we’ll be presented with jay norris doing his life
invader keynote now we can’t skip this which is
infuriating because we’re on the clock but what we can do is wait and keep a
really good eye out so the second jay pulls his phone out we can give him
a quick call okay so your cue is as soon as he makes
the docking signal he’ll pull the phone out and then that
gives us an opportunity to start bringing up his number
so pull up your phone go to the contacts
select jnoris and then give him a quick
call that ladies and gentlemen is him having
a very bad day and that’s it for the action before we
